And any other of these for any other•"Ereignis" is the facticalexperience of the event of appropriation that places each to each and thus turnseach towards each, creating a topology and a topography in which we glimpse the withdrawal of Being as change, granted/gifted only in and as change•"What withdraws in the granting" is not properly even a what, it does not and can never transcend the granting itself as always already withdrawn•The body thus is not an informationprocessor except in an accidental sense. The body ontologizesthe real, the mind experiences and isthe experience of this ontologization asreality, yet once it isas an effect of the body, it determines the mannerin which the body ontologizes the real to begin with•Reality is not purely nothing, but as the HIggs field models, the lessthannothing that defuses pure nothing as the highest point of tension, that between passive nothing and active negation. This pure nothing is both false,in that like drive it is only in the absolute past, but it still must be in the absolute past because reality can only be as a defusion of that tension•Specifically the Higgs field models, not the void/Chaos, but the
abyss/Tartarus that serves to keep the void/Chaos eternally hidden - the abyss is not deep, it is not even shallow, since it is a priori to every dimensionality•Entelechia as an active “at work remaining itself” is thus part of the moment beforemetaphysics. Plato and Aristotle, while being the foundation of metaphysics, are not themselvesmetaphysical, since they had to already accomplish their work for metaphysics proper to become possible. A return to the moment before the co-origin of rationality and history (and conceptuality, capitalism and numerous other intertwining intradependent threads of Western civilization) is in thinking a return to Aristotle, Plato and their predecessors, notto repeat metaphysics but to enact the new as a forgettingof metaphysics and a recollecting of a differentpossibility. This forgetting though must notforget its forgetting – a different possibility must remain in a certain relation to Western history as metaphysical•Aristotle's work appears to be ordered backwards from a metaphysical perspective, with first philosophy appearing last, physics second last, and thestudies of human experience in the Ethics and Poetics first. Yet it is notan incorrect ordering, since as pre-metaphysical Aristotle could only found physics and metaphysics itself on experience, and thus experiencing itself had to be understood first. Not until Hegel, Schelling, Marx, Nietzsche and Heidegger do we see the orderof Aristotle's thinking (largely how his students ordered his work) repeated, which is the signatureof the post-metaphysical
